Having already drank my fair share of Kingfisher, and always being left disappointed, when I saw this alternative I thought I might as well give it a try. Under the same brand, Ultra labels itself as the ‘Emperor of good times’, and to my surprise lived up to its name. I’m not 100% sure if this beer contains glycerine, however if it does it definitely doesn’t contain the same amount as its evil brother. I’d describe this lager as similar to a traditional European lager, think Heineken, Grolsch, that sort of thing. Unfortunately Ultra is pretty hard to find, especially in bars and is often only available from the local Rhythm n Booze, for this reason I’m going to give Kingfisher Ultra a 2.5 pint award.
